Judith Leigh McFarlane

June 2nd, 1941 – August 25th, 2015

Judy peacefully passed away at the UBC Hospital, where she had wonderful care for her final weeks of life.

She was predeceased by our Mother, Margaret and Father, Murray McFarlane. Sadly, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles as well.

Judy left very special family members surviving her. Niece Julie (Darryl) and Great Niece Sarah home in Victoria. Nephew John and Great Nieces Emily and Jasmine, home in Hobart, Tasmania. Auntie Kay, home in Kimberley and Cousins and Friends. Her Sister Beth (John) in Kimberley, who will no longer share those long phone calls anymore. Judy spoke often of all of us.

Judy, born in Cranbrook, spent her growing up years there. She left home for a secretarial course at the Mount Royal College in Calgary. Vancouver was calling, so her career was with ICBC until retirement. Then she could take cruises and enjoy time in her apartment, watering flowers on the deck and decorating it to her delight. She shared many trips and pleasures with our Auntie Edith, living only blocks apart.

My life is now without my sister but I do have many fun-filled memories.

Thank you to Deryle and Jerry for giving Judy so much happiness on Vinyl.

There will not be a service, your remembrance for Judy can be through the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.

Judy’s family will place her name at the Serenity Gardens, Cranbrook Cemetery.
